2:00 pm
storm by later tonight. maximum winds right now 35 miles per hour if it becomes a tropical storm its name would be brett. the good news is, the forecast track really keeps it away from land. we're expecting it to kind of turn up to the north and away from the coast. we might get cloud cover and rough surf as a result of this. mostly heavy showers for the bahamas. >> thanks so much. a look at one of our top stories. a key adviser to afghan president hamid karzai and a member of afghanistan's parliament were killed today. at least three attackers entered the home of jan mohammed kahn, the former governor of one province. they killed him, his security detail and the parliament member. minutes ago i talked by phone with cnn's david ariosto in kabul. >> just moments ago we spoke with both nato and afghan officials. this gun battle that has been raging since about 8:00 p.m. local time here in kabul
2:01 pm
continues. what we've learned is that afghan security forces are being led by afghan national police. this is significant because nato and part of the transition made it clear that they're intent on positions more and more authority towards afghan forces. today was actually the first day of the transition period to be extended over the next two years. >> the taliban is claiming responsibility for the attack. the murdoch phone hacking scandal in britain has claimed its first public official. just hours ago, britain's top cop suddenly resigned. his resignation comes on the same day police arrested a top murdoch executive. let's bring in cnn's atika shubert. atika, is there a connection between the resignation and the arrest of that top murdoch executive? >> well, there are basically two different strands of the same scandal. in the place of sir paul stevenson, the topmost senior police officer here in britain, he basically resigned because of
2:02 pm
increasing intense scrutiny over the relationship between the metropolitan police and "news of the world." that tabloid that was shut down because of those phone hacking allegations. and basically there was a former "news of the world" editor, neil wallace, who it turns out was paid by the metropolitan police to be a communications consultant. sir paul stevenson was taking a lot of flak for that. now, he resigned saying he feels he's done nothing wrong, his integrity is intact, he says. however, he does feel that these allegations are distracting from the metropolitan police's police work. and for that reason, he has decided to resign so he can focus only on those allegations and the police can get on with doing their work. >> meantime, atika, murdoch executive rebekah brooks, she still is being questioned at this hour after more than seven hours at the police department? >> she is. it's now gone late into the
2:03 pm
evening here. it's about almost 10:00 at night. and, you know, the thing is, she went in this morning because she had an appointment to talk with police investigators. but her spokesperson tells us she did not expect to be arrested when she walked in the door. but that's exactly what happened. she's now been there late into the night answering questions. we're still waiting for word. of course, this is going to have an impact on her hearing on tuesday. she was supposed to be grilled by lawmakers. it's not clear now if she gets released exactly if she will actually be able to attend that hearing. >> and still scheduled to answer questions before parliament would be rupert murdoch and his son, james murdoch, as well, right? >> that's right. they're supposed to be alongside her. there's really only so much all three of them can say as this police investigation is going on. rebekah brooks, if she's released and allowed to attend she probably can say even less because she can't prejudice the investigation. and also she could be in danger of incriminating herself. >> atika shubert, thanks so much from london.
2:04 pm
keep us posted on that. meantime, in germany, it's an incredibly exciting final match at the women's world cup soccer tournament. and it's not over yet. apparently it's in overtime with team usa scoring two goals and japan with one. any predictions of a blowout by either the hot favorite of usa or the sentimental favorite of japan, all wrong so far. cnn's zain verjee is at the game in frankfurt, germany. wow, with the cheers right now, what's happening? >> if you can hear me, japan just missed a goal very closely. the u.s. is breathing a huge sigh of relief. u.s. is 2-1 up, is the score. they are minutes away from making history. boy, this has been such an electric match. abbey wombach just moments ago
2:05 pm
with alex morgan. there was kind of a miscommunication in the u.s. defense line. and japan was able to make it 1-1. but the u.s. scored the first goal in the 68th minute. they are playing superbly. they've been the strongest team. they have shown amazing stamina and a never say die attitude. japan was a little bit nervous before, but they are coming back in full force. there is is cheering for both sides in the stadium around me. and in a few minutes, the u.s. will be able to clinch the 2011 world cup if they can hold off the determined and highly skilled japanese. >> oh, my goodness. how exciting. that's incredible. zain verjee, thanks so much. keep us posted there from frankfurt. let's check out what some of the fans here state side are saying and thinking about this nail biter of a tournament. susan candiotti is in manhattan at a german bar or pub or
2:06 pm
eatery. oh, they're cheering "go, usa," aren't they? >> reporter: it's hard to turn away from the game to talk to you. i just can't take it. anyway, we got -- i've got japan fans over here. usa fans over here. so japan cheering defense. uh-oh. uh-oh. they just tied it up. japan just scored. oh, man. it's a wild scene here. a lot of happy people and sad people. >> okay. i know. susan can't hear us. they are excited. it's 2-2 now. it's tied up. already they were in overtime. the u.s. seemed like they were just maybe seconds away from clinching this title and now japan has scored yet another point. so now we're back to being tied.
2:07 pm
can you hear me now, susan? >> reporter: yeah, i can hear you now. so let's talk to -- tell me your first name. what do you think of what's happening right now. >> i'm not worried. i think the u.s. is a better team. >> reporter: you still think the u.s. will be able to pull it off? >> with wombach in there, yes. >> reporter: tell me the emotions you're going through right now. >> it's a little unbelievable that they scored. i think hope solo just came off of a little bit of a jolt, wasn't quite ready. you also get back in there. they've proven it time and time again. they're going to win. >> reporter: there you go. you see, even she can't look at me long enough to do the interview. everyone's eyes are glued to the set here, obviously. >> very exciting. okay. >> reporter: we'll get back to you as soon as it's over. i hope we get the ending, right? >> we're going to get right back to you. right now we're going to go to tokyo where we know people are incredibly excited there, too. paula hancocks has been there
2:08 pm
with a very quiet crowd who was watching last time we checked with you. now they must be exuberant. >> reporter: they just went absolutely berserk just a couple of minutes ago. tables were being toppled because people jumped up so quickly. i got hugged by complete strangers. everyone was so excited. the passion is back in this room. everybody believes that tokyo -- that japan can now go on to win this. of course, they have been quite quiet for a while. people have thought maybe that was it, that was the end of it. but twice they've thought they were out of the game and twice japan has pulled it back. there is such excitement here. and, of course, in japan it is more than just a game of football. it is more than winning the world cup. the whole nation is behind this one team, the team that has gone further than they ever thought they would. and look at this atmosphere.
2:09 pm
this is incredible. >> fantastic. okay. well, we can understand why the people there in japan are so incredibly excited after all they've been through with the tsunami and earthquake early in the year. now they have something super to cheer about. what you're looking at now, on the left-hand screen you've got japan. down on the bottom there in the center, that's washington, d.c., where people are glued to the television sets. then in the upper right hand corner in new york. people cheering on usa, cheering on japan, while it is tied up now, 2-2, japan and usa women's world cup final in frankfurt, germany. of course, just down the street from that restaurant or pub in washington, d.c., at the white house with our first family, they, too, are watching the game. here's some of the first official white house photographs just released here showing the president, first lady and daughters saw shsha and malia transfixed. some snacks there, too. watching the game just like everybody else.

today that haosni mubarak has fallen into a coma, the hospital says he has regained consciousness. cnn's fred pleitgen with the latest. >> reporter: according to medical sources at the hospital where hosni mubarak is being treated, he fell into a coma earlier today. but that only lasted for a very short time. and he has since awakened and is, quote, in stable condition. now, earlier hosni mubarak's lawyer, a man who is representing him, told cnn that mubarak had fallen into a deep coma at noon local time here in egypt from which he had not awakened. the health ministry for its part told us it had no information whatsoever as to whether or not hosni mubarak was in a coma. but also said that he was in stable condition. now, hosni mubarak's health is, of course, a major issue here in egypt. for one reason because he's due to stand trial for atrocities committed during his reign in power and also during the uprising that began here on january 25th. there have been health issues
2:14 pm
with mubarak since he has had to cede power earlier this year. there was an interrogation during which he felt unwell and he had to stop that. just a couple of days ago it was said that his heart had stopped and he had to be resuscitated. so certainly his health is a major concern to many people. many of those, of course, are people who want him to stand on trial. his trial is due to begin on august 3rd. at this point in time, it's anybody's guess whether or not he's actually going to be fit to appear in front of a court. fred pleitgen, cnn, cairo, egypt. today is the last day in afghanistan for general david petraeus. in a few hours he'll hand over command of nato troops there to a u.s. marine corps three star general. general petraeus will retire from the army to become director of the cia. more than 5,000 people have now fled the area where a volcano roared to life just a few days ago. it is in northern indonesia. the mountain sent smoke so high officials are worried about the effect it may have on airline

anthony walks out of jail and out of sight. our martin savidge was there for the midnight release. martin, she left right out the front door. that's not exactly what the crowd expected, right? >> reporter: no, it wasn't, fredric fredricka. good afternoon to you. you know, this case has continued to surprise people almost from the get-go. and right up to the verdict, of course, many people were very surprised, disappointed with how it came out. then of course with her release, all of this debate, all the talk about how it was going to be done and the very clandestine nature that we probably wouldn't see her at all, we'd be guessing as to one of six doors she might come out of. one of the reasons why you had the pool camera suicide so we might know in some way she was, in fact, released and see it documented. in the end what happened? she comes out the front door. there she is hand in hand with her attorney. as they come out, there is this huge crowd that blossomed in the last half hour to about 1,000 people. all television cameras. remarkable scene.
2:32 pm
helicopters flying overhead. very public. out in front of everyone to see. they get into an suv and they drive off into the darkness. helicopters try to follow it. the vehicle apparently ends up at the bank of america building which is the office of one of her lead defense attorneys, cheney mason. and then disappears. that's the end of it. that's, of course, the way the defense team wanted it to go. they were so concerned because of the death threats that have been made against her. since that time we haven't seen casey. we haven't heard from her parents. they don't seem to be speaking to her. so there is no communication as to what is going on. what was happening today, a very silent walk. a lot of people, about 150, went from the sight that's become the makeshift memorial. this is where caylee's remains were found. and they went from that spot, walked down the street, completely silent. holding signs, many of them with young children, families intact, going down the sidewalk, going to the anthony home and then they made the trip back. and for most, it was a moment of closure.
2:33 pm
is this a closure? >> this is a closure. this is as we were saying before, starting today we're just -- it doesn't matter anymore. the verdict is read. it's over. what's done is done. somebody else will take care of it in the end and we just needed to all say our good-byes. >> reporter: that's it. for many people they say they're getting on with their lives. the verdict has been made. they will move on. fredricka? >> all right. martin savidge, thanks so much from orlando. all right. across the country, the heat is taking a huge toll. take a look at what months of drought have done to this farmland in texas. and this isn't confined to the south. and then the harry potter movie. just how hot is it at the box office? it's sizzling.

talk about hot times in the city. we're seeing the heat index in triple digits in a lot of places. right now it feels like 100 degrees in st. louis, missouri. 102 in dallas. can you believe it feels like 107 in of all places minneapolis? the blistering heat is not only
2:37 pm
dangerous for those of us who are out in it but also for animals and crops. in texas, wheat is dying before it even gets a chance to grow. ranchers are selling off their cattle in record numbers. the drought is killing all of the grass and they can't afford to buy feed which is going way up in price. and that means we are going to see prices much higher when we go to the grocery stores. then take a look at this in oklahoma. it's so hot the asphalt is buckling on some of the roads. something tells me jacqui jeras is here to tell us not that cool days are right on the horizon. >> not so much. >> more heat for a while, right? >> yeah. i mean, this is a really significant heat wave. >> it's incredible. >> parts of texas and oklahoma have already been in it for probably a good week already. they've been seeing those buckling roads and the drought conditions are just unbelievable. but the nation's midsection. this is where you normally don't see temperatures like this. like minneapolis and chicago, take a look at the heat index in those cities.
2:38 pm
unfortunately, we're talking about probably at least until the middle of the week. so this is a sustained event. this is a long event. and those overnight temperatures are going to stay very high into the upper 70s to lower 80s. so there's really no recovery time. and that's the biggest problem is that you don't ever get a chance to cool down, unfortunately. we've got what we call a big ridge in our upper level pattern. and that means it's going to kind of stay put here. we really need another big weather system to kind of push this out. but unfortunately, you know, areas of high pressure move over to low pressure. this thing is going to kind of sit here throughout much of that week. we want to talk about minneapolis, for example, and show you what you can expect in this area. we're talking about temperatures in the upper to middle 70s throughout most of the week. and look at those overnight low. 80 degrees, 80 degrees, 79, 76. those are some very brutal and rough conditions. now let's talk a little bit about the tropics, speaking of things heating up a little bit. we got our second tropical depression developed just in the
2:39 pm

2:44 pm
jobs. >> they feel a little complacent, feel like they're, i don't know, i guess a little mundane. just in that rut. but they've got to get excited about it before anybody gets excited about them. is that what you're saying? >> that's what i'm saying. you've got to fall back in love with that job. you have to make the decision you're going to have the passion to do it. you also have to make sure people are seeing your efforts. the other thing to do is something hr departments will do. a lot of departments do a 360 assessment. you want that feed back from your boss but also customers or people who work from you and your peers. that can be hard to do. >> how are you going to do that? kind of survey folks? >> survey folks. you ask them what do you think i can improve upon? what do you think my strengths are? how do you see me in this environment? is there something no one wants to say to me but someone really needs to say to me so i can truly improve. >> then you set new and specific goals for yourself. >> be clear, very specific. where do you want to be a year from now? how much income do you want to be making? what kind of responsibilities do you want? then what do you want less of? because for a lot of people there's some things they'd like to kind of cut out of whatever their job is. and that would make them more
2:45 pm
effective. >> understand the big picture. the big picture of your company, not necessarily just your goals? >> yes. this isn't just about your goals. this is about what's the big picture for where the company is headed and where's the company right now? so many companies are dealing with change. if you're one of those people that's fighting against change, you're not probably one of the ones that's going to get promoted to that next level. they need people that are going to be resilient and flexible. when change is happening. >> valorie burton thanks so much. helping to reclaim your career every sunday beginning at 4:00.

program settings, and you'll likely find a junk mail filter that lets you increase or decrease the sensitivity of that filter. by default, it may be on low. but, you know, in some cases it's a little slider. take the mouse and move it across so it will catch what they think is junk mail. what the program will try to guess to be junk mail with either keywords or not knowing who it's from. it's not a bad idea to see if there's any false positives. but the first tip is to definitely by default move it from low to medium or even high, within the settings. i know with outlook, it's pretty easy to find. >> ok. and then there's software to reduce the spam mail. how does that work? >> sure. there's different pieces of software out there that will also add another layer of protection from junk mail. a free plug-in for outlook is called spam fighter. it's a very powerful tool that is free to use. and so you can go to
